    Please explain to me what the "Burning Man" festival is all about.

    I know it's an annual get-together held out West. But what goes on there?

    Is it all male only? Is it gay-only or mixed? Does any hot M2M sex go on there? Is it worth my going there to try it out?

    I'd like to hear from someone who has actually been there and can speak from first-hand experience. Details, please!

    Thanks! :smile:

    never been but have a friend who did. Have heard it is really a free-for-all with special emphasis put on artsy & unconventional self-expression. Str8, bi, gay, all mixed, very open & tolerant attitudes prevail from what I understand. Also apparently cool to be nude for those inclined to that form of self-expression.

    If being nude in the August desert sun were a wise thing....

    Read this blog entry
    and see what you think. It's pretty damn funny.

    You might hear that Burning Man is where ppl from San Francisco go to be naked and have sex. This is is so inaccurate ...... they come from all over the universe.

    This blog entry describes Burning Man exactly as I always imagined it...which is why I've never gone. Seriously, I think I'd be miserable there.

    I like looking at pics of the event, though. Quite an interesting bunch of people with all their creative costumes. But I doubt that I'd connect with these people, and I'm sure that in the dust and the heat I would not look as pretty.
